A future classic
By James T on


2004 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK32 AMG 2dr Roadster (3.2L 6cyl S/C 5A)


This is an exceptional car in every respect. In my opinion it's a future classic (only c.4,300made most in US) & has better looks than the latest SLK AMG's and it's rarer & faster. It's a pleasure to drive around town so much so that even my mum could drive it without knowing what it's capable of. It's a wolf in sheep's clothing and will decimate most challengers. When you want power it launches you as if you're strapped to a rocket and that power still keeps coming until your nerve or the road runs out.

Best Features

Appearance - it's obviously not a standard R170 SLK. Performance - that of a supercar - it eats Astons, most 911's and many a Ferrari. The exhaust note.

Worst Features

Add a better HiFi - the Alpine IVA D310R fitted perfectly into mine and it has a 'pop out' SatNav/Video/I-Pod screen.
